The “Sinister” Side of Central Bank-Issued Digital Currency
by A. Hannan Ismail
Posted March 16, 2017
Imagine programmable money issued by central banks directing what you can and cannot do.
If you live a lawful life you might maintain that you have nothing to fear, in the same way as you do not mind the harvesting of your personal data on the promise that it makes you safe.
Then, one day, your money is ‘turned off’ because of some infraction that you may or may not have committed.
Mass, digitized surveillance makes this possible today. A central bank-issued digital currency can very, very easily become another tool of social control. More…
The “Deep State” and the Unspoken Crimes of the U.S. Empire, Operation Gladio
By Gary Weglarz

The key institutions of Western societies have lost their credibility. They fail to merit either the respect or loyalty of the domestic populations they purport to serve.
Testing the validity of this assertion requires examination of Western institutions from a holistic rather than fragmentary perspective. This is easier said than done.
There exists a massive amount of near real-time web based information available for us to process daily if we are attempting to keep abreast of world events. This often leaves us diligently evaluating recent events, while lacking the opportunity to step back and assemble these discrete events into a more comprehensible whole. More…
The Sinking of the Lord Clive

We can look at the adventures of the US today and observe their serial invasions over the last fifteen years in the Middle East and elsewhere. These adventures are being pursued ostensibly “to make the world safe for democracy.” However, whenever the US takes over a foreign country, it puts in place a puppet government—not exactly the textbook definition of “democracy.”
And, of course, warfare is very costly. Choosing to invade multiple countries at the same time, as the US has been doing over the last fifteen years, is even more costly.
And the US government never misses an opportunity to portray the Russians as evil aggressors—an appellation far more suited to the US. On one occasion after another, Russia has sought to tone down the level of aggression, whilst the US has been conducting a shoving match with the Russians, goading them into conflicts. More…
Protest is Increasingly Becoming Criminalized in America

Readers of Liberty Blitzkrieg will be well aware of the gradual erosion by the state of the civil liberties of the American public. Such attacks are typically sufficiently under the radar, so that the average citizen has no idea what is happening until it’s too late. I have written about such calculated assaults on many occasions, but the holy grail target of the status quo is the First Amendment of the Constitution, which enshrines a right to the freedom of religion, speech, the press, and the right to peaceably assemble and petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Many aspects of the First Amendment have been neutered in practice. For example, the right to assemble peacefully and effectively is often prevented in practice by the need to secure permits and other hindrances (see “free speech cages” and “protest zones”) . Meanwhile, on college campuses, where activism is historically most vibrant, many schools have embraced the Orwellian concept of “free speech zones” in order to prevent free speech.
Unfortunately, it appears this trend is about to get a lot worse following the DAPL protests and increased activism we’ve seen since Trump’s election. More…
8,000 Documents Detail CIA Crimes — But US Media Won’t Touch Them
By Paul Kaiser
Posted March 13, 2017
Hats off to our so-called free press. Even with our pragmatic worldview, the western media consistently performs well below our already extremely low expectations.
It’s now been well over 24 hours since Wikileaks released more than 8,000 documents detailing the CIA’s “global covert hacking program”.
And the leaks (known as “Vault 7”) haven’t even finished yet. As the Independent notes, “when taken together, Vault 7 will make up the biggest intelligence publication in history.” More…
The Conflict within the Deep State Just Broke into Open Warfare
by Charles Hugh Smith
Posted March 13, 2017
Vault 7 is not just political theater–it highlights the core questions facing the nation: what is left to defend if civil liberties and democratically elected oversight have been reduced to Potemkin-village travesties?
If there are no limits on CIA powers and surveillance, then what is left of civil liberties and democracy? Answer: nothing.
The battle raging in the Deep State isn’t just a bureaucratic battle–it’s a war for the soul, identity and direction of the nation. Citizens who define America’s interests as civil liberties and democracy should be deeply troubled by the Establishment’s surrender of these in favor of a National Security State with essentially no limits.
